Blurring the boundaries between sound art and chamber music, We the Gleaners (Dana Lyn, Matt Kanelos, Kyle Sanna) forge a musical trip into a new world of events that may or may not have transpired. Dana Lyn plays music with Stew, Hank Roberts, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Taylor Mac. She has also written music for Brooklyn Rider, Irish poet Louis de Paor, the Apple Hill String Quartet, Palaver Strings, A Far Cry, audio stories for The New York Times, and with her own band, Mother Octopus. She also has recorded three albums with guitarist Kyle Sanna, hailed by The New Yorker as a “first-rate, versatile musician.” Kyle’s musical practice includes composition, improvisation, the recording studio, coding, and the traditional music of Ireland. With sought-after musical collaborator, multi-instrumentalist and composer Matt Kanelos, who has released four well-received albums as a leader, they are collectively known as We the Gleaners.

We the Gleaners utilize found sound, recorded thought, and conversational improvisation to structure their compositions. The project mother speaks / mothers speak is inspired by interviews with their mothers as they were asked to speak about their perspectives on life, motherhood, partnership, aging, illness, death … all of the big topics! Rather than writing songs about their mothers, mother speaks / mothers speak aims to be music inspired by them. The performance will feature Dana Lyn on violin, synth, and samples; Kyle Sanna on guitar, synth, and samples; and Matt Kanelos on piano, synth, and samples.


The Uncharted concert series, now in its 10th year at Greenwich House Music School, provides a much-needed resource for New York-based musicians to develop original material, foster new collaborations, and premiere first-look projects in an intimate concert setting. 100% of all ticket sales go directly to the artist.
